Physical Cliff

Cliff_Edge_warningOften times if you follow politics or heck even turn on the news or read the news paper you hear the term fiscal cliff, It’s usually used to scare Americans into supporting some crap agenda by a certain political party. Well today I want to speak about another kind of cliff were headed for if things don’t change soon.  We will call it a Physical Cliff. Our country was once the greatest of all nations, you had freedom, liberty and prosperity just to name a few : all with a bill of rights and our beloved constitution to back it up. Now the very foundation of our country is being chipped away a little at a time by democrats, republicans, celebrities, education systems, TV and pretty much anything that has to do with the government, money, or politics. The main stream news is always talking about a new crisis, and as soon as the money or political gain is gone the story is swept under the rug, They the MSM make huge stories out of nothing like so and so celebrity, got a DUI (of course they seldom mention that they just get scolded a little), or wrecked a car. Very little mention of real news is ever presented. However there is a lot and I mean a LOT going on in the country we live in. Illegal aliens coming across the border just like it was crossing the street bringing diseases, and lice. Taking up more of the few jobs we have left, In some states they have more rights and can live more freely than us the American Citizen. For instance when I got my license, I have to provide proof of residence, an original birth certificate, and prove I was a citizen. Some states are being forced by Federal Law to give them license even If they can’t provide all the documentation.  When enrolling my children in school after a recent move here in Alabama, I had to provide proof of residence by showing a copy of my lease also provide copies of Birth certificates, Social Security Cards, Blue Cards (shot records). If I would have been a illegal alien I would not have had to provide most of that, And if I did not speak English I could receive even more benefits. The state is required by law to provide me with food stamps and TANF, if I told them my immigrant children were hungry, even if I could not prove my income. However if I were to go and try to apply for Food Stamps or TANF or any other Government program I would have to prove who I was, where I live, all my assets, and prove my income. It is truly a sad time when I can get a ticket or fine for fishing without a licence but Illegal Immigrants can flood across the border and reak all kind of destruction,  and be given rewards for it.

The next problem is there are conflicts all across the globe and the United States just has to be involved in every one,  and really not doing anything but stirring up trouble. There is unimaginable mass corruption in our entire system of government, everything from local judiciary courts all the way up to the President of the United States. They insist on controlling every single aspect of our lives. just like the Nazi Germans did. Most people are oblivious to whats going on around them. The information and proof is there written in black and white, if they would care to look or listen.  Local mayors, Police officers, and judges most are corrupt in someway, not just here everywhere.  Every which direction I look just about I see the United States snowballing down a slippery slope, and very few are even trying to stop it.  In fact some of the idiots are encouraging it, and helping to push it along. Everyone wants to blame Obama, and yea he has done his fair share to screw things up what with all his executive actions, but he is to much of a moron to master mind this whole collapse his self, I’m not giving the idiot that much credit.  All Obama is is a Yes Man, Yes i’ll screw the country, Yes I’ll triple gas prices by causing panic and promoting “global awareness” or something.  Yes you too can be appointed to a powerful office. Sure you can poison millions of Americans’ with the food you manufacture. You get what i’m saying.  My point is Obama is just a puppet in the corrupt system money controls everything, If you have the money you have the power simple as that.  There are plenty other people in Washington and all over the United States to blame for the mess this country is in right now, not just Obama. Just to clarify I am not in any way a fan of Obama,  just stating the facts.

Back to the topic of cliffs. I am certain that the United States is headed in the wrong direction, and has almost finished creating  it’s own demise. Picture the United States like a box. Much like the extremely horrible , and terribly scary fiscal cliff, When that fiscal Cliff box is pushed close to the edge closer and closer it falls over and tada ALL National parks close and VA Memorials all across the country close in the blink of an eye,  because lack of funding.  While the government is spending double the money for officers to keep people off the closed property during this time for their own safety, proving that the whole fiscal cliff government shutdown is really a load of BS, and the government really does not shutdown.  The hypothetical physical cliff we are headed toward is far more dangerous. The government keeps pushing our box closer and closer to the edge and eventually we as a country will fall over the side, it would have been to far and be to late to stop it at that point. There would be no way back. However there is still time to stop this from happening to this great country, but it requires everyone to stand up for what is right and push the box back the other direction. You have to stand up and have a voice. Oppose Agenda 21, Oppose Big Government, Oppose Common Core,  Oppose corruption , Oppose GMO poison, Oppose big pharma, Oppose a “New World Order” or a so called “One world Government”, Oppose the “New” Constitution,  Oppose the Forcible and unaffordable  Care Act.

Wake Up! Obama Is Destroying the U.S’s Ability to Defend Itself

Actual photo of Obama riding

President Obama is: giving crucial tactical military equipment to Russia for free; gutting our military; he is attempting to end the funding for the Israel missile defense shield; demilitarizing the National Guard; pushing young military officers out of the military; he’s killing the Tomahawk and Hellfire missile program with nothing to replace them; he’s destroying our nuclear warheads and no new weapons are in the offing; he’s done nothing to protect our power grid; and the list goes on.

Even knowing all this, the latest attack on our defenses is shocking – we don’t have one tank left in Europe – not one!

The last Abrams tank left Germany in January.

Tanks are a vital weapon in our defense system. You don’t see Russia canceling funding for their tanks.

We gave over 200 Abrams tanks to Morsi’s Egypt but we have none in the EU as Putin threatens to invade European countries. Does this make sense?

This move will shut down the only U.S. plant that produces them!

Obama uses the excuse that we can’t afford them and they are outdated anyway. Our nuclear warheads are outdated and the Hellfire/Tomahawks are outdated as well according to the Obama administration. His opinion is not shared by many experts.

That aside, he has come up with nothing to replace them. the same goes for the Air Force’s A-10 Warthog, which Obama’s DOD Hagel wants to retire – there’s nothing to replace the Warthog. “Retire” is the nice word they use for “kill”.

In February, Hagel said this:  “The A-10′s age is also making it much more difficult and costly to maintain. Significant savings are only possible through eliminating the entire fleet, because of the fixed cost of maintaining the support apparatus associated with that aircraft. Keeping a smaller number of A-10s would only delay the  inevitable while forcing worse trade-offs elsewhere.”

The Ground Combat vehicle has been defunded.

There are NO new weapons systems, no innovation, no war-ready anything to take their place and there are no funds to build any.

By 2020, there will only be 30,000 American troops in Europe, about one-tenth the maximum stationed in Europe during the Cold War.

Why is Obama doing this?

Obama wants to make us incapable of ever again being more “exceptional” than Britain, France, Russia, China.

Also, Obama believes that all solutions must be political and diplomatic ones because it is after all the 21st century. So what if much of the world lives in the 19th century.

Some might add that Obama hates traditional America.

We are engaged in a second Cold War. Russia, China, al Qaeda present an existential threat to the U.S. N. Korea and Iran are launching long-range missile tests on a frequent basis. This is the time that he chose to disarm us.

What is Obama doing?

He is stopping fossil rule development and has halted the Keystone Pipeline indefinitely while he destroys the coal industry. He is stepping up the Climate Change Agenda. He is bankrupting the U.S.

He believes exactly what the Russian-loving Communist Party USA believes. Whether that means anything, I can’t say, but in another time, Obama would be considered a traitor. From my vantage point, he’s delusional. People need to start paying attention.

US WEIGHS CURBING DEPORTATIONS

WASHINGTON (AP) — Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson is weighing limiting deportations of immigrants living in the U.S. illegally who don’t have serious criminal records, according to two people with knowledge of his deliberations.

The change, if adopted following an ongoing review ordered by President Barack Obama, could shield tens of thousands of immigrants now removed each year solely because they committed repeat immigration violations, such as re-entering the country illegally after having been deported, failing to comply with a deportation order or missing an immigration court date.

However, it would fall short of the sweeping changes sought by activists. They want Obama to expand a two-year-old program that grants work permits to certain immigrants brought here illegally as children to include other groups, such as the parents of any children born in the U.S.

John Sandweg, who served until February as acting director of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, said he had promoted the policy change for immigrants without serious criminal records before his departure and that it was being weighed by Johnson. An immigration advocate who’s discussed the review with the administration also confirmed the change was under consideration. The advocate spoke on condition of anonymity because the proceedings are confidential.

“Any report of specific considerations at this time would be premature,” Clark Stevens, a spokesman for the Homeland Security Department, said Monday. Stevens said Johnson “has undergone a very rigorous and inclusive process to best inform the review,” including seeking input from people within DHS as well as lawmakers of both parties, and other stakeholders.

The approach outlined by Sandweg and the immigration advocate would change the existing priority categories that now include immigrants who’ve re-entered the country after they have been deported previously, and those who are fugitives from immigration proceedings. Such people would be taken off the priority list.

The remaining priority categories focus on recent border-crossers and immigrants who pose a danger to national security or public safety or who’ve been convicted of crimes. Some of those categories might also be refined or changed, and others could be added.

“The time had come to focus ICE’s efforts exclusively on public safety and national security,” Sandweg said in explaining why he pushed for the change prior to his departure from the agency. He estimated that some 20,000 deported immigrants fell into the categories in question last year.

The potential changes come as Johnson proceeds with a review ordered by Obama on how to make deportation policy more humane. With comprehensive immigration legislation stalled in the GOP-led House after passing the Senate last year, Obama has come under intense election-year pressure to stem deportations, which have neared 2 million on his watch, and allow more of the 11.5 million immigrants living illegally in the U.S. to stay.

Many activists, who’ve staged hunger strikes on the National Mall and outside the White House, want sweeping action by Obama to give legal certainty and work permits to millions more immigrants, like he did for those who arrived illegally as children and attended school or served in the military.

It’s not clear whether the administration ultimately will take such steps. Obama has said repeatedly his options are limited without action by Congress and has sought to keep the onus on House Republicans.

“The only way to truly fix it is through congressional action. We have already tried to take as many administrative steps as we could,” Obama said last week at a news conference. “We’re going to review it one more time to see if there’s more that we can do.”

For now, administration officials appear more focused, instead, on more limited, near-term steps that could still make a difference for the immigrant population, according to lawmakers and activists who’ve met with administration officials.

Adjusting the department’s priorities for deportation is one such approach. Depending on how it’s done, it could have a significant impact by providing new guidance to ICE agents on the front lines. Activists want more wholesale changes; some say ICE agents don’t always follow the priorities set by the administration.

“I think that is a step in the right direction, but not enough,” said Gustavo Torres, executive director of CASA de Maryland, an immigrant service organization. “We believe the president has the authority to stop deportations” of larger groups of people.

At the same time, Obama would likely face GOP wrath for taking even the smallest steps toward providing relief to people in this country illegally. Republicans already accuse Obama’s administration of subverting the law through previous moves to give “prosecutorial discretion” to immigration agents.

“We’re already at a point where deportations are in a state of collapse and to go further would be exactly the wrong thing to do,” said Sen. Jeff Sessions, R-Ala.

The Obama administration’s deportation priorities have been controversial, with the administration contending they’re meant to keep the focus on criminals. Immigration activists argue that in reality, many people with a minor criminal record or no record are swept up.

Advocates say part of the problem is that, although criminals are prioritized, people with no criminal record or a minor record can be removed if they’ve gotten caught up in the immigration system.

Obama To Americans: You Don’t Deserve To Be Free

 

English: Barack Obama delivers a speech at the...

President Obama’s Kansas speech is a remarkable document. In calling for more government controls, more taxation, more collectivism, he has two paragraphs that give the show away. Take a look at them.

there is a certain crowd in Washington who, for the last few decades, have said, let’s respond to this economic challenge with the same old tune. “The market will take care of everything,” they tell us. If we just cut more regulations and cut more taxes–especially for the wealthy–our economy will grow stronger. Sure, they say, there will be winners and losers. But if the winners do really well, then jobs and prosperity will eventually trickle down to everybody else. And, they argue, even if prosperity doesn’t trickle down, well, that’s the price of liberty.

Now, it’s a simple theory. And we have to admit, it’s one that speaks to our rugged individualism and our healthy skepticism of too much government. That’s in America’s DNA. And that theory fits well on a bumper sticker. (Laughter.) But here’s the problem: It doesn’t work. It has never worked. (Applause.) It didn’t work when it was tried in the decade before the Great Depression. It’s not what led to the incredible postwar booms of the ’50s and ’60s. And it didn’t work when we tried it during the last decade. (Applause.) I mean, understand, it’s not as if we haven’t tried this theory.

Though not in Washington, I’m in that “certain crowd” that has been saying for decades that the market will take care of everything. It’s not really a crowd, it’s a tiny group of radicals–radicals for capitalism, in Ayn Rand’s well-turned phrase.

The only thing that the market doesn’t take care of is anti-market acts: acts that initiate physical force. That’s why we need government: to wield retaliatory force to defend individual rights.

Radicals for capitalism would, as the Declaration of Independence says, use government only “to secure these rights”–the rights to life, liberty, property, and the pursuit of happiness. (Yes, I added “property” in there–property rights are inseparable from the other three.)

That’s the political philosophy on which Obama is trying to hang the blame for the recent financial crisis and every other social ill. But ask yourself, are we few radical capitalists in charge? Have radical capitalists been in charge at any time in the last, oh, say 100 years?

I pick 100 years deliberately, because it was exactly 100 years ago that a gigantic anti-capitalist measure was put into effect: the Federal Reserve System. For 100 years, government, not the free market, has controlled money and banking. How’s that worked out? How’s the value of the dollar held up since 1913? Is it worth one-fiftieth of its value then or only one-one-hundredth? You be the judge. How did the dollar hold up over the 100 years before this government take-over of money and banking? It actually gained slightly in value.

Laissez-faire hasn’t existed since the Sherman Antitrust Act of 1890. That was the first of a plethora of government crimes against the free market.

Radical capitalists are just beginning to have a slight effect on the Right wing. The overwhelming majority on the Right are eclectic. Which is a nice way of saying inconsistent.

The typical Republican would never, ever say “the market will take care of everything.” He’d say, “the market will take care of most things, and for the other things, we need the regulatory-welfare state.”

They are for individualism–except when they are against it. They are against free markets and individualism not only when they agree with the Left that we must have antitrust laws and the Federal Reserve, but also when they demand immigration controls, government schools, regulatory agencies, Medicare, laws prohibiting abortion, Social Security, “public works” projects, the “social safety net,” laws against insider trading, banking regulation, and the whole system of fiat money.

Obama blames economic woes, some real some manufactured (“inequality”) on a philosophy and policy that was abandoned a century ago. What doesn’t exist is what he says didn’t work.

Obama absurdly suggests that timid, half-hearted, compromisers, like George W. Bush, installed laissez-faire capitalism–on the grounds that they tinkered with one or two regulations (Glass-Steagall) and marginal tax rates–while blanking out the fact that under the Bush administration, government spending ballooned, growing much faster than under Clinton, and 50,000 new regulations were added to the Federal Register.

The philosophy of individualism and the politics of laissez-faire would mean government spending of about one-tenth its present level. It would also mean an end to all regulatory agencies: no SEC, FDA, NLRB, FAA, OSHA, EPA, FTC, ATF, CFTC, FHA, FCC–to name just some of the better known of the 430 agencies listed in the federal register.

Even you, dear reader, are probably wondering how on earth anyone could challenge things like Social Security, government schools, and the FDA. But that’s not the point. The point is: these statist, anti-capitalist programs exist and have existed for about a century. The point is: Obama is pretending that the Progressive Era, the New Deal, and the Great Society were repealed, so that he can blame the financial crisis on capitalism. He’s pretending that George Bush was George Washington

We radical capitalists say that it was the regulatory-welfare state that imploded in 2008. You may disagree, but let’s argue that out, rather than engaging in the Big Lie that what failed was laissez-faire and individualism.

The question is: in the messy mixture of government controls and remnants of capitalism, which element caused the Great Depression and the recent financial crisis?

By raising that question, we uncover the fundamental: the meaning of capitalism and the meaning of government controls. Capitalism means freedom. Government means force.

Suddenly, the whole issue comes into focus: Obama is saying that freedom leads to poverty and force leads to wealth. He’s saying: “Look, we tried leaving you free to live your own life, and that didn’t work. You have to be forced, you have to have your earnings seized by the state, you have to work under our directions–under penalty of fines or imprisonment. You don’t deserve to be free.”

As a bit of ugly irony, this is precisely what former white slave-owners said after the Civil War: “The black man can’t handle freedom; we have to force him for his own good.” The innovation of the Left is to extend that viewpoint to all races.

Putting the issue as force vs. freedom shows how the shoe is on the other foot regarding what Obama said. Let me re-write it:

there is a certain crowd in Washington who, for the last few decades, have said, let’s respond to this economic challenge with the same old tune. “The government will take care of everything,” they tell us. If we just pile on even more regulations and raise taxes–especially on the wealthy–our economy will grow stronger. Sure, they say, there will be winners and losers. But if the losers are protected by more social programs and a higher minimum wage, if there is more Quantitative Easing by the Fed, then jobs and prosperity will eventually trickle up to everybody else. And, they argue, even if prosperity doesn’t trickle up, well, that’s the price of the social safety net.

Now, it’s a simple theory. And we have to admit, it’s one that speaks to our intellectuals’ collectivism and Paul Krugman’s skepticism about freedom. That’s in Harvard’s DNA. And that theory fits well on a bumper sticker. (Laughter.) But here’s the problem: It doesn’t work. It has never worked. (Applause.) It didn’t work when it was tried in the Soviet Union. It’s not what led to the incredible booms in India and China. And it didn’t work when Europe tried it during over the last decades. (Applause.) I mean, understand, it’s not as if we haven’t tried this statist theory.

How does that sound? That’s blaming an actual, existing condition–government controls and wealth-expropriation–not a condition that ended in the late 19th century.

So which is the path to prosperity and happiness–freedom or force? Remember that force is aimed at preventing you from acting on your rational judgment.

Obama’s real antagonist is Ayn Rand, who made the case that reason is man’s basic means of survival and coercion is anti-reason. Force initiated against free, innocent men is directed at stopping them from acting on their own thinking. It makes them, under threat of fines and imprisonment, act as the government demands rather than as they think their self-interest requires. That’s the whole point of threatening force: to make people act against their own judgment.

The radical, uncompromised, laissez-faire capitalism that Obama pretends was in place in 2008 is exactly what morality demands. Because, as Ayn Rand wrote in 1961: “No man has the right to initiate the use of physical force against others. . . . To claim the right to initiate the use of physical force against another man–the right to compel his agreement by the threat of physical destruction–is to evict oneself automatically from the realm of rights, of morality and of the intellect.”

Obama and his fellow statists have indeed evicted themselves from that realm.
